The Association of International Accountants (AIA) has received confirmation from the Bar of Ireland of listing as one of the professional bodies with direct professional access to the Bar.
Since the scheme began in May 1990 many bodies and their members have been granted direct professional access (DPA) to members of the Bar of Ireland in non-contentious matters.
The scheme will allow AIA members the opportunity to instruct barristers directly without going through a solicitor for opinions.
Commenting on the listing, Rachel Rutherford, AIA Policy & Public Affairs Manager, said: “I am delighted that AIA have been added to those professional bodies granted Direct Professional Access by The Bar of Ireland in recognition of its members expertise in accountancy and the AIA’s robust membership requirements.”
